Scouting for food
Vernon - posted Oct, 25 2013
VERNON - On Oct. 26, the Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in Vernon dropped off bags and notices at most houses in Vernon for the annual Scouting for Food drive. The scouts ask you to leave non-perishable food items out in the bag Saturday, Nov. 2, for pickup. Pick-up will begin at 9 a.m. so please make sure your donation is out by then. All food collected will go to benefit the clients of Hockanum Valley Community Council’s food pantry. Food is needed all year round but there is an increased need during the holiday season. If you are unable to leave food out on Nov. 2, the pantry is available throughout the week for donations, located at 29 Naek Road. Please call 860-872-7727 for hours. The Scouts thank you in advance for your generous support.
